to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing happened publicly. megyn: let me jump in. there are so many names that i think the viewers may be confused. the
about the scandal that has forced general petraeus out of government, out as head of the cia, and there are a ton of questions. and even though president obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed seni
the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all the challenges that face you, and have -- that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >> panetta a former cia director and the washington shuffle with panetta and clinton saying they want out of the second term. will john kerry now go to the pentagon? can susan rice be confirmed as secretary of state? and will nancy pelosi run for leader again? and what a welcome to washington the new class of congress arriving just in time for a classic d.c. scandal. and a different fall from grace, jon stewart, crowns himself the worst journalist in the world. >> anyone out there who thought i may have actual journalists instincts i give you a snippet of my interview. >> he loves serving, to be in the arena. i thought i was going to test him, he tested me, crushed his pelvis. he wanted to help me with the project. he can turn water into bottled water. >> the whole time i was staring at how defined her arms were.

there are a lot more questions than answers this morning about the scandal developing former cia director david petraeus and general john allen. here live in washington with the latest is peter. he still has some allies, right? >> one person who has seen the e-mail exchanges industries some of messages being the e-mail equivalent of phone sex. so today it's no longer going to be the eve of general allen's confirmation hearing to be native supreme allied commander in europe, his nomination has been put on ice. but allen said he did not have an affair with mrs. kelly, and at this point the secretary of defense is going to wait to pass public judgment. >> general allen is doing an excellent job and leading the forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. >> later on today deputy fbi director sean joyce is going to be an capitol hill explaining to committees why they weren't informed about the investigation into cia director general petraeus when it s
to the letter sent out at the workforce at the cia. he met with president obama yesterday to see if he would accept his eresignation a director. he showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in that affair. him and his wife were together 37 years and he said that type of behavior is unacceptable as a husband and a leader of the cia. he's held the position of director since congress confirmed him last september, prior to that he led u.s. forces in both iraq and afghanistan. petraeus said the president accepted his resignation this afternoon. the president issued a statement a short time ago that read "i am completely confident that the cia will continue to thrive and carry out its position. going forward my thoughts and prayers are with dave and holly petraeus who has done so much to help military families through her own work. i wish them the very best at this difficult time." he was slated to testify next week on the deadly attack of the u.s. embassy and benghazi, libya. no word if that resignation will have any impact on that in absence, the current director will serve as director. much mo
of the wildcard and the military will deal with that. general petraeus outside of that in the cia has a different set of ground rulings. but if every single professional or leader, including president's, was disqualified because of personal indiscretion, our line of leaders would probably be pretty short. and we should keep that in our memory. in fact, eisenhower, it was reported during the war, had a relationship with his driver. >> absolutely. >> and yet we hold him in incredible regard and we should. so this is not to apologize for anything that has happened or may have happened, depending on media reports, but we shouldn't forget the years of service these men have given and they should be given the benefit of the doubt. i've heard them, i've watched them, i have followed them. these are professionals who put this country first. >> and with the petraeus affair, i mean, it certainly and show poor judgment, but we should point out, and he stepped aside. but in general allen's case, his confidants who talked to the press, there was no affair with joe kelly, they were never in a romney alone. you
looks at whether the mistress of the former c.i.a. director had classified information on her home computer. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge tells us how some republican lawmakers are invoking washington's most famous scandal ever. but we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on the libya attack and who should get the blame. good evening. >> good evening, chris. temperature was raised today as the republicans said they want watergate style hearings in to benghazi. the president fired back saying if you want to blame someone, blame me, not my staff. when i pressed him today at the news conference what he did to save lives the president did not want to get into details. his first full news conference at the white house in eight months, president obama raced to the defense of his u.n. ambassador susan rice. republicans vowed to block her from becoming the next secretary of state. >> for them to go after the-up ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her rep
. thank you for staying with us for this hour. the acting director of the cia met for more than an hour with senators john mccain and lindsey graham along with the u.n. ambassador susan rice. the three senators emerged from the meeting saying they were honored by the fact that the cia director would meet with them, just three random senators and not in some official capacity testifying before committee on the hill. they appreciated the fact that the administration and the intelligence community was going to such lengths to e swaj their concerns to personally answer their questions about the libya attack in a closed-door meeting with the cia director himself, even though these are just three random senators. the senators said their questions were answered as reasonably could be expected and they were willing to consider the president's nominee for secretary of state. they were tlog hear out those nominations fairly and without prejudice. yeah right. that's not the way it went. here's actually what happened after that meeting today. >> we're not going to consider this nomination until we
was going to resign from the c.i.a. guest: well, we still don't know too much of the detail about what was going on with the f.b.i. there are a lot of reports out there, and, in fact, it is true that part of this investigation by the f.b.i. had to do with the question of whether somebody was improperly accessing petraeus' personal email accounts. you know, however, the sources that we spoke to said that wasn't really the entirety of the investigation or the thing that really got it rolling. but at some point, for whatever reason, the f.b.i. became concerned that somebody was getting into his account. now, you can see a variety of reasons why they might be worried about that, being the head of the c.i.a.. he's certainly someone that you would not want hackers or foreign intelligence people getting into any of his accounts, personal or professional. the f.b.i. apparently was exploring that, and in the course of going through these emails, found a lot of material that seemed to indicate that he was engaged in some kind of an affair. i think it was not immediately clear because of the lang
story tonight cia director david petraeus forced to resign after an extramarital affair this, san awful situation the fbi knew but kept under wraps until after the presidential vote. not even senators on the intelligence committee knew what is going on. >> we receive nod advanced notice. it was like a lightning bolt the way i found out. i came back to washington thursday night, friday morning, the staff director told me there were calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. as a matter of fact i had had an appointment with him at 3:00 that afternoon. that was cancelled. >> bill: what does this story mean for you? joining us now from washington is lieutenant colonel ralph peters. what is the important part of the story? >> the important part is that it appears the white house is lying again just as it was lying about benghazi. the key here, detail is the time line. who knew what? when? now it's emerged contemporary to details attorney general holder did know months ago about the investigation. it's strange to believe that eric holder did not tell his good friend, the president
brothers. the extramarital affair/political drama that enveloped former cia director david petraeus gets more extraordinary by the minute. this morning washington woke up to the news that the top commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mai
has been totally in the dark or was totally in the dark. the director of the cia was under investigation until a week ago last wednesday is when they say he found out. even so that investigation ban months ago. >> it is simply a fact that the white house is knottednot aware situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday. the situation regarding general allen until friday. so the fbi is the place to go. >> the deputy director of the fbi shawn joyce is going to make an appearance on capitol hill to brief leaders of the house and senate intelligence committee to say why they also were not kept in the loop regarding the investigation of general petraeus. this story has taken several strange turns in the past 24-hours. we caught our first glimpse of paula broadwell and found her driver's license was found on a jogging trail in washington. the scandal that started with broadwell has ballooned to include the top u.s. commander in afghanistan general john allen accused of sending several00 e-mails to kelley that were like phone-sex over e-mail. it is time right now to hold of
an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of standard procedure, but according to a congressionp aide familiar with the matter, the house and senate intelligence committees weren't told about the investigation until just hours before the director announced his resignation. as for questions over whether the timing of the resignation, coming just before general petraeus was scheduled to testify before the intelligence committee on the benghazi investigation, a senior u.s. official said any suggestion that the director's departure has anything to do with criticism about benghazi is baseless. it will now be the agency's acting director, michael morrell on the hill next week, answering questions behind closed doors about what the cia knew about the attack and when it knew it. >> we'll hear from a man who served with general david petraeus and knows him well, retired brigadier general mark kimmitt joins us live. >>> who is counting? florida has been counting vots longer
, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia has released a new timeline, a timeline of its actions suggesting it played a larger role in trying to save those four americans. my next guest says it is time for this administration, this president to come clean. my guest is admirable team of admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. i want to turn to that deadline. tuesday, election day, the eight week anniversary of the attack. now we have a timeline from the cia. your thoughts about both that timeline and the timeliness of it. >> well, i have looked over the timeline. of course, at least certain things out. for example, we have resources which were not utilized. one that we utilized in the past is having a jet aircraft fly over, which could have flown over the consulate in in full afterburner. it would have scattered the crowd about as valuable time and, perhaps, maybe save some lives. the second thing was that it citronella. it was 130 man marine force a recall and units that was fully equipped and ready to go. i am told th

, that david petraeus signed off on, the director of cia wrote the assessment, that's what she was doing. there are people in the white house, particularly the president, but a lot of support staff feel as if susan rice has gotten a raw deal on this. that she has been a political punching bag, if you will, over the last month and a half because of the presidential campaign, because of other things. so, this point when mccain and graham did their thing, that's why the president felt he needed to stand up for his u.n. ambassador. there's -- obviously he was giving off an indication he's willing to have a confirmation fight if they want to have one. but there's more to this, chris. there's more to this. this goes back to mccain and obama, they never -- they never had a warm relationship after the 2008 election. mccain, i think, has been tougher on the president than in the reverse. the president has sort of not taken the bait when mccain has hit him and hit him pretty hard. and i think this was an indication the president is ready to sort of fight back when it comes to mccain. this is not a
